I'm in a treasury!

For those of you unfamiliar with Etsy, a Treasury is a compilation of an Etsy member’s favorite things.  It can be by category, color, theme… the options are endless.  For the first time, I’ve been featured on a member’s treasury under the theme “Making it PERSONAL”. The treasury is curated by Paper Presentations, check out their shop here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/paperpresentations The piece chosen is a wedding portrait I did of a close family friend.  I’m so excited!! It’s wonderful to know that other artists notice and appreciate my work!

Check it out here!

In other news, I’ve shipped off my first comissioned piece!! It was hard to say goodbye and trust USPS with my baby, but hopefully it will arrive to the seller quickly and carefully.  Fingers crossed!

Coming up…

I’m almost done with my first commissioned piece! I’m so excited about it and feeling incredibly inspired.  I’ll be sending it out this weekend and once the buyer receives it I’ll be posting pictures of it here! (I would hate for them to see a picture of it before they actually got to see the real thing.)  I have a few more portraits to do after that, trades with fellow artisans and family gifts, but I’m hoping to get some time in for a special project… Anyone who reads my blog knows about my love of children’s books and their illustrations.  I have a special affinity for The Giving Tree, The Little Prince, and Alice in Wonderland, so I’ve decided to create a line of paper cut recreations of my favorite illustrations! Here are the images on my list so far…

What’s YOUR favorite children’s book illustration?

Cut cut cut!

I’ve been having a blast making these cut paper portraits!  Last night I tried a wedding theme, and I’m really happy with the results!

Here are some close up shots from the process

 

I’m about to start work on a commissioned piece and then I can let my imagination pick the next project!! Any suggestions?

I'm back!

Hey everyone! (and by everyone I mean Evyatar).  I have been terrible about posting and I’m not going to make up for it with this short post 🙂

I’ve started a new job, gotten engaged, and been honing in on my illustration style.  I had a vision of making Juniper using a 3D cut-paper illustration style, and so I had to teach myself how to cut and glue like a master.  In the process, I’ve discovered that it makes for a great looking family portrait!


After making this family portrait for my brother’s family, I have gotten so many compliments and encouragements that I’ve decided to open up an Etsy shop for custom paper-cut portraits!

May I introduce to you… (drumroll please)… Paper Portraits!

Enjoy 🙂

Don’t worry Evyatar, there’s more coming!
